2018 Felton Road "Bannockburn" Pinot Noir Central Otago

SKU #1443570 95 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Delicately-scented Pinot Noir with appealing violet, red rose, dark cherry, anise and subtle smoky oak flavours. A supple wine with an ethereal, seamless texture. This entry-level Pinot Noir sets the bar high for the more illustrious labels. Inner quote mark (7/2019)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromatic and expressive, with raspberry, cherry and fresh herb notes that are precise on a smooth and supple frame, offering details of matcha green tea, white pepper and forest floor. A hint of fresh nutmeg lingers on the long, expressive finish, where the tannins provide a slight grip. Drink now through 2034. (MW) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Such attractive, mouthwatering aromas of spicy and brambly red cherries. This is in very seductive form in 2018 with supple, smooth and gently creamy, red-cherry and raspberry flavors, delivered in a silky, elegant and smooth mode. Fresh, lithe finish. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This vintage of Felton Road's blend of fruit from all four of its vineyards still bears the estate's signature while being a little less cohesive than its single-site wines, like Block 3. It's softly spicy with high-toned red berry and plum fruit, green peppercorn and slight mushroomy notes. The palate is neatly structured, hugged by savory, if somewhat blocky tannins. A characterful and approachable drop now. (CP) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Organic and biodynamic. Subtle rocky/mineral dark-red fruit. Taut and elegant on the palate. Intensity without weight, sweet fruit without sweetness. Long and super-fine tannins. (JH) Inner quote mark (2/2020)
